The University of Illinois Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) offers information and resources on obtaining many different forms of financial assistance for both incoming and current students.
Newly admitted students are automatically considered for College of ACES scholarships offered through the University of Illinois. Scholarship award letters indicate whether the scholarship is one-time or has specific criteria for it to be re-issued.
Current students will be notified by email each spring when applications are open for College of ACES scholarships. With a single application, students can be eligible for several different scholarships. ACES awards approximately $1.1 million in merit-based awards each academic year thanks to generous support of alumni and friends of the College. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit as determined by the applicants' professional interests, activities, achievements (including scholastic), and potential in their field.
ACES also offers scholarships and resources for studying abroad and conducting research.
